An honorable man does not disrespect the contributions of a hard-working employee regardless of any differences in views. This behavior by Jim is akin to this quote from Bill Graham: A child who is allowed to be disrespectful to his parents will not have respect for anyone.

A political Shell Game; an assurance ruse designed for deception.

Selectman Ziolkowski shifted resources then claimed a victory. There was never any money returned to the tax payers in Hampton Falls.  Jim raided the Rainy Day Fund and reallocated to the tax rate. He just shifted the funds to hold off on the inevitable tax increase after the 2019 Town election.

 J. E. Ziolkowski recused himself from the Board and left the table to allow discussion of Environmental Landscape Management’s proposal to reduce the costs for 2019 in exchange for a three-year extension of contract agreement. L. M. Smith spoke with Attorney Margaret Burns, New Hampshire Municipal Association. She recommended the three-year extension of the winter road maintenance contract go out to bid in accordance with state statute 95:1 due to J. Ziolkowski’s position as a public official.

The Board did not have any further comments on the budget. J. E. Ziolkowski stated he is opposed to the budget
